  • Nowitzki scored 16 points (5-6 FG, 5-5 3PT, 1-1 FT) to go with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block over 25 minutes in Saturday's 108-82 win over the Clippers. The veteran forward sank five three-pointers en route to 16 points on Saturday. While Nowitzki is winding down his stellar career, performances like this one are as good as it gets for the future hall of famer. Nowitzki has yet to crack the 20 point mark in a single game this season. That being said, he is not a solid play even with steady performances like this.

  • Nowitzki had his best game of the season on Saturday, as he collected a season-high 19 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 3PT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in a 97-81 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. This was easily Nowitzki's best game of the season, as he's showing signs of life the past few weeks. In fact, he has at least 12 points in six of his last eight games, as he scored seven or less in three of four to start the month. That's the sort of production fantasy owners hoped for at the beginning of the season and it's a great sign to see him post such a potent line in 22 minutes of action. It remains to be seen if he'll wear down as the season goes or if he's taking some time to finds his legs. In any case, his minutes are unlikely to reach 30 too often this season, as it's becoming a rebuild year for the struggling Mavs.

  • Nowitzki scored 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt) to go along with 12 rebounds, two assists ans a blocked shot in 32 minutes during Monday's 110-102 loss to the Celtics. Nowitzki had one of his better games this season due in large part to a slight increase in minutes. He recorded his first double-double of the season in a close overtime loss. He still remains the Mavericks' number-one option inside despite seeing limited minutes in the twilight of his career. While he isn't an elite option at center any longer, he could serve some purpose as a second or third option, as he has dual eligibility at forward in most leagues.

  • Nowitzki accumulated 12 points (5-8 FG), seven rebounds and six assists in a 97-91 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday. Nowitzki has been a shell of himself this season, but this may have been his best all-around game of the year, In fact, the six assists marked a season-high, while the seven rebounds made for one of his best totals of the season. Much of that has to be attributed to the fact that he played 29 minutes, which also tied a season-high. The scoring numbers have to be concerning though, as this was only the second time in his last six games that he's scored more than seven points. It's clear that the years are catching up to Dirk and he's becoming a nuisance for fantasy owners with such a limited ceiling.

  • Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Near double-double in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nowitzki registered 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes in Wednesday's 119-98 loss to the Clippers. The ageless veteran was highly efficient with his modest amount of minutes, hauling in his second-highest amount of rebounds in the process. Nowitzki did see his three-game streak of multiple three-pointers come to an end, but he's drained at least one long-distance shot in four straight. The 20-year pro likely won't see over 30 minutes in any game this season, but he's proven capable of generating solid numbers with an abbreviated allotment of playing time (six straight double-digit scoring efforts).
